    June Program - Marianne Jeffrey

    Marianne taught us some techniques to relieve the aches/pains and stiffness of sitting at our sewing machines and/or cutting table for long periods.  Some pages of Chair Yoga techniques will be posted on the Announcements page.  Below are photos of her trunk show - she has made lap quilts with Foundation Paper Piecing, with the occasional applique and embroidery.  She self-publishes books which are available thru Amazon.
